After Ben Moorhouse and Leo a.k.a Ten Fé released Twist Your Arm, their bluesy-electro-stomper produced by Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture), which was NME’s New Music of the Day, Line Of Best Fit’s Song of the Day and Hype Machine No. 1, today Ten Fé unveil an exciting new rework by Berlin-based DJ and producer Roman Flügel.
The original ‘Twist Your Arm’ features slide guitars, chain-gang backing vocals, gospel piano and a Primal Scream / Screamadelica infusion by Pearson.
Flügel, one of Germany’s biggest names on the electronic music scene has delivered a darker, moodier mix.
Also today the band announce their 5-track Remix EP, ‘Hit The Light – The Remixes’, which will be available on 24 February as a digital download and on limited edition Vinyl.
The Roman Flügel remix will form part of the remix EP which is presented by Electronic Beats, German Telekom’s platform which has been at the forefront of electronic music for more than 15 years. The EP has an impressive line-up featuring remixes by electronic music legend UNKLE, Ewan Pearson, Tom Furse of The Horrors and Norwegian producers Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas. The Remix EP is the culmination of a collaboration between the band and Electronic Beats, and the deft analogue-meets-digital vibe that their relationship is about, presenting exciting and exclusive remixes of Ten Fé’s album tracks on limited edition vinyl.
